We’ve never heard of British grime hip-hop artist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chipmunk[/lastfm], but we like his decidedly grunge-y English flow complete with his streetwise London swagger. His cute, tiny little tatted frame isn’t half bad either.
Combine that with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm]’s boyish, soaring vocals and a video that looks like it was filmed on the same set as [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Diddy-Dirty Money[/lastfm]’s “Coming Home” video and you’ve got a recipe that will make all the girlies nuts.
We’re not sure what part of “Champion” means that you rap angsty flow in an underground steel pipe; in the middle of a desert evocative of Area 51; with a creepy light shining behind you. But if that’s all it takes to be “born a champion,” we are pretty sure snakes and creepy crawlies in the High Desert were all born champions as well.
One thing we are certain of–despite the childish name, Chipmunk, little Chippy is not only born a champion; he is born a star. We look forward to hearing more of his unique songwriting in 2011.
